Cosmetic Procedures > Whitening Your Teeth

Zoom! Whitening is SAFE, FAST and EFFECTIVE. You may have seen the Zoom! process used by me on ABC’s Extreme Makeover.

Whitening can make your smile beautiful and bright and often takes years off of our patients' appearances. There are many whiteing products and procedures available today, but we recommend that patients look for a whitening procedure that is:

Fast and convenient
Long lasting
Low sensitivity
Proven safe and effective
Performed by a Dental Professional

Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of up to eight shades.

The complete whitening procedure takes less than an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed as little as by 45 minutes of bleaching. (A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom! whitening session.)
